star this property answer text <p>​It is important that credible allegations of violations of international humanitarian law (IHL) are investigated and the Saudi-led Coalition has committed to doing this. The UK has not been directly involved in investigations undertaken by the Joint Incident Assessment Team, but has supported its development and delivered two training sessions in Saudi Arabia on the process for investigating alleged IHL violations. The UK continues to believe that the Coalition has the best insight into its own military procedures and will be able to conduct the most thorough and conclusive investigations. The Coalition has publicly stated that any lessons learned will be acted upon.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​There are no projects being funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office this financial year (2017/18) with either the Causeway Institute for Peace-building and Conflict Resolution (CIPCR) or the Bahrain Institute for Political Development (BIPD) for projects in Bahrain. The UK has worked with the Government of Bahrain to encourage progress on human rights in areas which include focusing on building effective and accountable institutions, strengthening the rule of law and justice reform. All of our work aims to support these institutions to operate in line with international standards, including on human rights, through sharing UK expertise and experience. Any training provided by, or on behalf of, the UK Government complies with our domestic and international human rights obligations and internal government guidance. As part of the programme process which CIPCR undertook between 2013-2016, there were a variety of events and meetings in Bahrain. CIPCR are not used for any project work in the former Yugoslavia.</p>

star this property answer text <p>I recently met representatives of the Baha'i faith to discuss the issue. The human rights situation in Iran remains deeply worrying and this includes Iran's approach to freedom of religion and belief. The treatment of the Baha'i community is of particular concern. The latest report of the Special Rapporteur on human rights in Iran sets out the repression and harassment that Baha'is suffer in Iran. This includes restrictions on the types of businesses and jobs Baha'is can have, unequal treatment of Baha'i employees, and seizures of Baha'i businesses and property. We hope to highlight the situation of the Baha'i with the UN General Assembly Third Committee in New York.</p><p> </p> more like this
